    Such a lovely lady. I was blessed to grow up in Northside Baptist Church where she and Coach attended faithfully. Her warm smile made everyone feel so welcomed and valued. In my memories I can still see them seated in the back left section of pews and also see the joy on her face as she played handbells. We will meet again some day.

    What a wonderful lady! This is what I think every time I talked to her, in and around Denham Springs. She was truly one of the biggest YELLOW JACKET fans I ever met. I will miss her face and spirit she gave at ALL the DS Athletic meetings and tailgates.
